Wow, It has been most of the summer since I last posted. I need to get out and get more photos to post. It has been very busy summer mountain biking and didn’t want to bore all with so many similar shots.
Here are my latest from a walk in the nearby woods.
On Easter Sunday went for a walk to the local downtown and signs of Spring are everywhere. Always fun to take the camera and you never know what opportunities pop up. Here is just a variety of what I saw.
Very invigorating to hike through the woods on a cold winter day. The cold air and smell of the pines just makes me glad to be alive.Every season has something special to offer. Compared to summer it is like a window has opened and you can see things that were totally hidden with all the leaves.
The trails I hiked today meander through meadows,marshes, pine forests, and along unfrozen rivers.
A poem I like:
Winter slips silently around me
Walking me to cold, crisp woods
To gaze upon the peaceful slumber
Suddenly exhilarated, restored in found solace
While driving west on Pennsylvania Turnpike last week it was closed for 100 miles due to an accident. I had to detour on a two lane highway and saw some interesting things. I took a few photos of some buffalo.
Went for walk at a place called Hawk Woods and there is a neat old barn not far off the trail. I was able to go inside and snap a few shots but my hands were freezing cold as the temp was about 12 degrees. Also the snow was VERY deep to get to the barn that it was not an easy walk. I need to go back again when weather warms up a bit.
Woke up on this very cold morning to frost on the window.
Not far from Comerica Park are a few blocks of these 19th century homes that are in great need of restoration. At one time these neighborhoods just north of the downtown area were nice places to live but time has passed them by.
